    I was thinking of maybe going to the Manassas AP to see the planes there but then wouldn't see the whole lot of them. I checked out the Reading air show site and they are going to have a P-38 there but I bet that one will be changed also.

    The article now gives September 25th as the date of what sounds like a spectacular flypast. I hope that the corona virus will have subsided by then and that the weather will stay fine.

    Thanks for the update, Bob. We here in Montgomery County are the hotbed of Maryland's outbreak...around 1/3 of all cases in the state are local. It's gotten so bad that the county bus service has dropped to about half their normal weekday schedule, and are threatening, if the buses are toof ull to maintain the recommended social distancing, to leave passengers waiting at the stops. The airshow is certainly in the category of "non-essential" travel they're urging people to cut out, so I for one fully support the postponement.
